Be careful where you swipe your debit card!
The risk of fraud is everywhere, but experts say certain places are more dangerous than others.
Here are four risky places to avoid.
Number one: outdoor ATMs.
“Bankrate” says thieves can easily capture your bank card information by running it through a skimming machine installed over the real card reader.
Instead, experts recommend using an ATM inside a retail outlet where that’s less likely to happen.
Number two: gas stations.
Bankrate experts say they’re a danger zone because they’re less secure and transactions require very little supervision.
Cash or credit cards are the best ways to pay at the pump.
Number three: online purchases.
Bankrate experts say this may be the most dangerous place to make purchases.
